Thought we'd get this kicked off, no pun intended. Come here to save face and own up to fail predictions you made.

I'll start: When we traded a fifth for Jamie Kirlew and Squid in the seventh, I liked Kirlew and hated the Thompson pick. Well Kirlew's not even on the PS and Squid made the team and will contribute on special teams.

As you season goes on and your fail becomes clear, post it here!

I'm pretty sure that when we acquired Quinn I said that he would hands down be better than Orton in this system, and would beat Kyle out for the starting job.

I also said that I didn't think there was any way we would release Stokely or Green.

I empathize with the second take as lot of us believed that. For for the first take, shame on you.

At some point after the draft I thought Orton's tenure was in imminent jeopardy due to the acquisitions of Quinn and Tebow. And I thought Alphonso Smith was a stone cold mortal lock to make the team until at least half way through the preseason.

I'm hoping to eat my crow at the end of the year, although I do think we will do better than other's (media, fans of other teams) seem to think. I also am not ready to buy that Orton could take us to the promise land or close. That's a crow I'd like to eat.

great thread...

I wish i was wrong once and while so I could post in it.

I am on record numerous times about Moreno having a breakout year, and I'll post it here again for the sake of crow at the end of the season....


moreno will have 1300 rushing yards, 4.1 ypc and 350 receiving yards with 9 touchdowns OR BETTER.

i think its ealry for a crow eating thread...i want to see what happens over the course of the season...

but if i had to go with something now, i thought the Brady Quinn acquisition was a great move if for no other reason than we gave up very little...however we could use that "very little" in our backfield right about now and Quinn looks like Chris Simms...

Surprised Smith was traded but then again I was surprised the way he became a Bronco. Good recovery on a bad decision for McD.

I was surprised when they cut Davis too.

Your right it is too early on the Quinn move.

I think it will still prove to be a great move, remember Orton in his first preseason?

I thought Smith would be the #3 CB on the roster.

I thought Fargas would make the team and contribute well.

I thought DT would be the #1 WR going into Jax.

I thought Orton would get a 2-3 year deal AFTER the season. I can live with 1 year before...and after he has a great season talk about extending. I will be here to eat it if he sucks this year.

I will go on record as saying I hated the Tebow trade and pick as much as anyone, after having seen him in the offseason, I do love Tebow as a person and a player, but I need to see him play well in the regular season to fully enjoy that crow.

Tim missed 1.5 weeks to injury so I'll probably pop back into this thread week 3-4ish.

I was seriously upset when we drafted Tebow. Don't really know why, and I'm actually on board with it now. It just seemed at the time that McDaniels was just trying to **** with my head. In hindsight, that's pretty delusional to think it was just McDaniels ****ing with my head. Xanders was probably in on it as well.
